The Keene Public Library is pleased to announce a Winter Reading Program “Be A Smart Cookie Read.” The program has been created to give kids, teens, and adults an incentive to use their library cards and get ready to spend cozy winter times with a soft blanket, warm mug, and a good book. Readers and listeners can sign up and pick up winter reading materials at the library starting December 10, 2016, when there will be special programs for people of all ages. At 11 a.m. in Heberton Hall, children and families are invited to a Gingerbread Friends read-aloud, which will be followed by cookie decorating and winter crafts. In the afternoon, celebrate the season and craft beautiful cards for family and friends at a Drop-in Card Making Workshop. All supplies, including an Accucut die cutter and beautiful papers, as well as examples, will be provided. And then during the Winter Reading Program, the library will provide weekly drop-in craft activities in the Youth Department. Come by each week and make something new and different.
The Winter Reading Program will run through January 28, 2017, when the special closing event will be a Give the Mouse a Cookie party. This party is for children ages three to twelve and will start at 2 p.m. Details for this event will follow shortly.
The Keene Public Library is located at 60 Winter Street. Additional information about the Winter Reading Program and other library programs is available by calling the Keene Public Library at 603-352-0157. The library is handicapped accessible and all library programs are free and open to the public.
